Derek881 (1005) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2012
I sampled this beer on draft at Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore, Maryland, served in a snifter glass. The beer had a somewhat-cloudy, straw-orange/yellow, with a large, bubbly white head that had very good retention and ample cling and lacing. The aroma featured crisp notes of floral, pine, and citrus hops, along with yeast and some sweet malty scents too. The beer is fairly sweet and has touches of fruity and floral effects to go with a slight citrus bitterness. Its a fairly wet beer with good carbonation, and has a lighter feel and is a touch thin.

Growler of unknown age: Butter smell. Cloudy yellow, thin head. Corn and butter flavor. Grassy finish. Bad sample, needs re-rating.

Goodgrief (1782) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - DEC 30, 2011
On tap at Pinocchio’s. Murky straw colored with white foamy head. Yeasty aroma. Lots of pilsner like flavors in this, hay and grass with sweet bready malt. A sweet and zingy tang imparted from the Belgian yeast. Pretty enjoyable.

craftycarl21 (2214) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Draught at Churchkey. Great Belgian dough and spice notes, very light and amazingly refreshing considering the ABV. Very very well done.

blipp (5981) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Draft. Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head. Pale malty aroma with some fruity yeast and light spicy notes. The flavor has pale malts, fruity lemon, and some spicy notes. Nice.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 30, 2011
On tap at Tyler’s in Durham. Overpriced $8/10 oz pour (I ordered before I looked). Pours pale straw golden with moderate white head. Clean, grassy, slightly hoppy taste. Some grain and moderate Belgian yeast. Light and refreshing for the style. Thin palate. Very drinkable for 8%, but maybe I just needed the beer.

Hazy yellow with a creamy white head. Sweet Belgian yeast and fruit esters to the aroma. Tastes of malt apple pear and light banana. Quite good. Nice creamy palate.
